Sunstone (2 year olds) & Moonstone – FS1 | Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy

Sunstone & Moonstone

2 year olds and Foundation Stage 1


We have a setting which has 32 child places – 16 in the morning and 16 in the afternoon. The 2 year setting is in one unit within the nursery unit which then children are transition into.

We provide workshops for parents to help support their children. Currently we have, ‘Come and Read,’ workshops every Tuesday morning 8.30 –12.35.

We provide a 2 year old setting which is stimulating for the children and provides opportunities for children to have fun and learn through play activities. We endeavour to make learning fun and involve parents in their children’s learning and development at all stages.

Feel free to speak to any member of the team to find out more about what is happening in Sunstone – if you would like information about how you can access a place for your child then click here.


A secure foundation stage helps each individual child’s development. Whilst they learn through play we develop opportunities which are planned around their needs and interests. We assess and review their learning on a regular basis.

In Moonstones we operate morning and afternoon sessions. Moonstone is led by Mrs Whittaker and supported by Miss Boden and Mrs Parker.

In Moonstone the children are always encouraged to follow and establish our rules and boundaries. The children continue to build friendships, secure existing friendships and make new friends.
